is a Good build for Akali.

Majai's, speed boots, Gaurdian angel, and a few more tank items a good build for her?

No- she completely loses purpose if she can't burst down her target.

And 95% of the time, if you had GA, you'd just be delaying the inevitable "get right back up and die again".

Rylai's in almost all situations. Rageblade. Zhonyas. MAYBE Lichbane. I hate how the mana is wasted.

Mejai's if doing well, Sorc Boots/Merc Treads (Don't bother with Swiftness), Rylai's Scepter, Lich Bane, Zhonya's, Guinsoo's, and survivability.

No set pattern and you should only follow it if you don't have any other item that's completely necessary to get.

Her base damage allows the bursting down of targets if she goes tank. Just takes a little more time.

Banshee's veil is very important.

There's nothing as fun as jumping on a Annie with Pyromania active. She can do nothing about it, if she uses her spell, she'll lose the stun and need a few casts to get it back. (That can be countered by having only 4 stacks of pyromania, but that's not always a good idea).

Wrong, if you built tank and jump on a frozen mallet /red pot /banshee's veil/3 doran's blade/etc carry, you'll die.

Merc Treads first, since you need to be zooming around and if you are stunned, you can't do that.
Bilgewater Cutlass gives you both Lifesteal and Spell Vamp due to your passive, then get either Rylais Sceptre if you're in gank mode or finish Hextech Gunblade if you are still laning. At this point go for Zhonyas and a Lich Bane, but the game should be over at this point. Guardians Angel is a waste on Akali, since her job is to nuke the enemy carry and get out.

Which completely ruins the point of her. She's supposed to take a squishy carry with the most damage out of the team fight as soon as possible (Twitch, Tristana, MF, etc.). If she's building survivability and it's taking you a while to kill Twitch, he's already penta'd your team. Good job.

Also note that most champs Akali is designed to kill either build lifesteal or will have some sort of escape to get out of the way when needed. If Akali can't burst a champ down before he or she destroys your team, Akali didn't serve her purpose and was useless.
